OK, seems like I led you down the garden path These are the sentences that it appears in:
Hey, my good old friend. I just thought about the rocks standing on the south shore of this land. Perhaps we could cut out some useful hard stones and beautiful marble.
Ah, OK. Here, the greeting is a little off; something like "Hail, old friend" might do a little better, as both "hey" and "good old friend" are awkward; idiomatically, an old friend is assumed to be a good friend ;). Maybe swap "building" for "hard", but otherwise that's OK.
Standing is not a problem.
Stones can be mined in granite mines, but the easier way is to build a quarry next to some rocks lying around. As it happens, there is a pile of them just to the west (left) of your headquarters. I will teach you now how to move your view over there.
This is fine.
